Call For Speakers

Speaking proposals are now being accepted for the 3rd Annual USGBC Louisiana's FORWARD Symposium on Friday, October 19, 2018 at Tulane University Lavin-Bernick Center in New Orleans.

The 2018 theme is, Shared Value, Equity & Growth: Designing a Strategy for a Sustainable Future. The event is designed to bring Louisiana's diverse green industry professionals together to propel the state's sustainability conversations forward. Past events have attracted USGBC member and non-member business professionals, environmentalists, architects, educators, nonprofit leaders, and students. The symposium creates a platform where leaders can collaborate and explore what's happening across Louisiana and how, through our shared values and interests, we can move the state towards a more sustainable, resilient future.

The deadline for speaking proposals is July 27th.
